We’ve seen (and reviewed) our share of smart glasses around these parts. It’s an industry that’s hellbent on putting technology right within the field of vision of the user—this Catch 22 sort of promise about keeping you more engaged in your surroundings while actually placing notifications and apps right in front of your face. Nevertheless, consumer interest in smart glasses is clearly starting to take off. And there may be no better example of that very fact than Norm smart glasses from Human Capable Inc.
Introduced earlier this year, Norm promises to be the most natural looking pair of smart glasses out there that still provide a full range of features—including the ability to shoot photos and video—without the need to have your phone in your hand. Human Capable launched a Kickstarter campaign with a soft goal of raising $15,000 for their glasses within the 30-day campaign limit.
And they crushed that figure in a matter of hours.
